Part 17: Episode 17: Some end-game-countdown plot dumps!Last episode we killed both Riberto and Chamelon. Now we have just four bosses left: Chance, Loki, Raven, and Perfect 1.
Killing off Chameleon has triggered another Lab video. Let's have a look.
Lab Visit #11:

Doctor: "It's her! It's Raven! Get this on disk."
Raven: "The system is breaking down much faster than I anticipated! Meet me in the DOASys as soon possible and I will tell you what you need to know. There's no time now, I can't maintain this link much longer."
Raven: "Whatever you do, watch out for the beast Loki. He can assume any form he chooses. Most often he chooses mine."
Gal: "We got it, but the transmission was cut from inside Perfect!"
Doctor: "Okay, Five, when you get back in there, take a shot, height straight for the DOASys."
The Doctor looks much more stoic in this shot than normal. I don't buy this for a second. I get the feeling he's actually a very doughy and unintimidating feature.
Had you noticed that they all wear what looks like trenchcoats? Sweet.
Let's head to the DOASys now!
Back to the DOASys
We find Raven at the DOASys for the first time. Just what the hell has she been doing all this time, anyway?
In any case, we have the ability to interview her now.
More women should dress this way.
Number Five - interviews - Raven
Raven, like the others, has a speech clip when you approach her. Unlike the others, her clip is much longer. So long that I figured I should consider it worthy of a video clip.

Raven: "You made it, good! Now listen, you must go to the stadium. When you find me there, you're going to have to kill me. This is the only way you can gain the power you need to enter the Spire and defeat Perfect 1. I won't be alone in the stadium, Loki will be there with me. He's the one who can assume any shape he chooses. Most often, he chooses mine. You must kill him before killing me. If you crash me first, all will be lost. Remember this: I will the one on the right."
Raven: "There's something else. Perfect 1 is not one, but three. Your choices will determine which of the three you will face."
Well okay, for whatever reason we need to kill Loki (rank 3) before Raven (rank 2), and Raven is sacrificing herself for the greater good. We still have to kill Chance first, though, so I'm not entirely sure why this is all coming up right now.
She also mentions that Perfect 1 has three different forms. I don't know what she means by "choices" that affect which of the three we face. I have run into Perfect 1 during the storms already in this game, and I've run into all three. There might still be something to all that, but I doubt it.
Regular Ol' Interview Rigmarole
Number Five: "What Is: Perfect?"
Raven: "People are dying by the thousands every minute in the hard world outside. We're trapped in here and the operating system's beginning to implode upon itself. You are our only hope."
Number Five: "Where Is: Perfect?"
Raven: "You already know the answer to that."
Number Five: "Who Is: Loki?"
Raven: "As I told you already, he is the Joker, a shapeshifter. He can assume any form he wants. He can be my identical twin if he concentrates hard enough."
Number Five: "Where Is: Loki?"
Raven: "You will find us both in the stadium."
Number Five: "What Is: Nukeya?"
Raven: "I think it will be our salvation. Get as many as you can."
Number Five: "Where Is: Nukeya?"
Raven: "I'm sorry, I haven't been able to find one. Look where you can, but don't delay too long, we're running out of time."
We seem to have the only Nukeya in existence. Hell yeah.
We will face Chance next. Maybe we should try the Nukeya out on him first.
